Shapeshifting 13 #16 Kickoff

August 28, 2015

WOOHOO, Ghoul Friends!

It’s so good to see your lovely cyclopic eyes!

(That’s right–I’m watching you! MWAHAHAHA)

Welcome back to the Shapeshifting 13 here at Grammar Ghoul Press, the only writing challenge on the web that morphs right in front of your eyes, and challenges you to delve deep into that cranium of  yours to construct and create a sumptuous, spectacular, splendid story of something that leaves us salivating in awe!

Now, before I just give you the prompts, let me remind you of a few things:

  • Voting for the Mutant 750 Challenge #48 begins immediately, so take a moment to peruse the submissions and vote for your three favorites. Voting ends on Saturday at 11pm ET.
  • Our first-ever Fall Short Story Contest is currently accepting submissions through Friday, September 13th at Midnight, Eastern Time. You are all such fabulous and fascinating storytellers, so I know you’ve got something to submit to this contest. The winner will receive $100 and be published in our fall issue of The Ghoul’s Review. Who wouldn’t love that?!
  • Don’t forget to visit our Facebook and Twitter pages, and feel free to spread the word about our wonderful website with your friends and frenemies! Let’s get the whole world to delve into their creative cerebellums and construct a cacophony of wonder!

Alright, alright, alright!!!

Last week for THE SHAPESHIFTING 13 challenge, you were tasked with creating a story or poem in just 39 words. As Fall is about to descend upon us, and I am über excited about it, this week, in exactly 52 words, your challenge is to write a story or poem inspired by the following image:

The Rules

  •   Challenge submissions must be fiction or poetry.
  •   Submissions must be exactly the number of words specified; no more, no less.
  •  Submissions must use the prompt as directed.
  •  Submissions should be written in response to the challenge, so they shouldn’t pre-date the kickoff post.
  •  One submission per person.
  •  Please put lengthy explanations at the end of your post, not at the beginning.
  •  Don’t forget to add the code for the challenge badge to your post.

Now, while your brewing that wonderful story, don’t forget to grab the Shapeshifting 13 #16 badge from the right side of the page, and insert it into your post. Remember, you have until Sunday @ 8pm Eastern Time to submit something. Have fun!

    So, silly question, who does the cartoony artwork that you feature on your posts? Just curious because I love it.

    May I ask if the attribution information is known for the image?

      You may absolutely ask! 😀

      I looked (briefly) and I didn’t find anything. If you find something, please let us know, and I’ll add it 😀
